    Now that Wynn Resorts has selected ALEC as the primary contractor for its ground-breaking Marjan Island resort in Ras Al Khaimah, we have some certainty that the project is proceeding according to plan. It was a joint effort between Marjan Island, RAK Hospitality Holding, and Wynn Resorts Limited that made the announcement. ALEC Engineering and Contracting (ALEC) is actually a division of the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) and they will be working alongside the German firm Bauer International, which will handle works related to piling and enabling.

    Wynn Resorts expects that construction on its casino resort on Al-Marjan Island in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will commence in a matter of weeks, forecasting a 2027 debut.
    The advancement of the UAE project is vital for Wynn’s long-term trajectory, because as its portfolio currently stands, it runs two Macau venues and three in the US, with the Macau duo doing much of the heavy lifting.

    There is no public access to the Wynn Resort (home of UAE's first casino) site. I got some pictures from afar.
    They are still preparing the terrain for construction.

    The UAE's First-Ever Casino has been confirmed!


    Wynn Marjan, which is set to open in 2026 in Ras Al Khaimah, will be home to a casino around 18,500 sqm in size, according to Billings.

    According to Hotelier, this would make it one of the 10 biggest casinos in the world, and almost double the size of Wynn’s Vegas property.

    According to the Q3 earnings call, Wynn is putting a high amount of focus on the project, with Billings noting that the project has “a very high return opportunity for us we expect. And so, that’s really the focus of our design and development efforts at the moment.”
